Giant Gigantor



Via Boing Boing comes this news...

Giant Gigantor Statue Going To Be Built In Kobe

The 18 meter statue of the early manga hero, Gigantor, is expected to weight 70 tons and cost 135 million yen (approx US$1.1 million).

Cool.

I just hope they're careful not to let Gigantor's controller fall into the wrong hands or serious mayhem could ensue.

I watched Gigantor as a kid, but if I had to pick one robot for giant statuehood, it would have to be Astro Boy.
